Count free agent forward Thaddeus Young among those who could potentially end up playing in China. Agent Jim Tanner told HoopsHype Young has been drawing plenty of attention from several clubs in the CBA.
“I have been contacted by multiple teams in China expressing very serious interest in having Thaddeus Young play in their league this season,” Tanner said. “I have discussed this with Thad and he is intrigued by the possibility of playing in China if the lockout continues and has asked me to further explore these opportunities. At this point, our conversations with the teams have been preliminary but we are continuing to talk and to do our due diligence on each option.”
Wilson Chandler and Earl Clark are the only two NBA players that have committed to joining the Chinese League so far.
Young, a four-year NBA veteran, averaged 12.7 ppg and 5.3 rpg with the Sixers last season.
